Plus a huge thank you to Emer for getting our team organised, and to John Lawless for being our designated photographer and mascot for the evening!

This years’ chosen charity was The Simon Community and proceeds from the run will go towards helping those currently experiencing, or at risk of experiencing, homelessness.


The GT5K series is organised by the national governing body Athletics Ireland, whose mission is to support and develop the athletes of Ireland of all ages, disciplines and abilities. Athletics Ireland generates 50% of its own revenue to support its programmes. Grant Thornton’s sponsorship of this event allows for funds raised by Athletics Ireland to be channelled into Junior High-Performance Athletics programmes.
